TAM reported a net loss of BRL 24.7 mm (about USD 10.0 million) for the second quarter.

Even with the improvement on market share (from 33.1% last year to 42.7% this year), TAM costs has been increased in 26,4% mainly because of higher fuel prices (+31%).

EBITDAR increased in 10% compared to 2004 numbers.

TAM numbers are not so good as Gol, but also obtained more than BRL 500 million as a capital increase thru Sao Paulo Stock Exchange. The company just informed that 2Q is generally the bad for an airline.

Seems they probably start to try reduce some costs (BR has announced today a reduction of about 3% on Aviation Fuel Prices).

Regards,
Felipe

Sorry folks but I have my critics about this post:

It is interesting how some posts are done....specially how they are posted about TAM.

TAM had a loss of USD10 million only the last 03 months of the semester...nobody paid attention that it ended the semester with a profit of USD12.8 million!!!

The results are lower than expected but still being profitable.

GOL published it results also and according to press, they also had profit but this profit is 77% lower that last period!!!

Cheers.

JJMNGR: I made the both posts (Tam and Gol), both using same criteria (second quarter "XXX 2Q results: xxxxxxxx of USD xx.x"), and the way you talk you corrupt your first quarter profit, or accounting procedures and int'l / BR Gaap has changed ? I can't agree with anyone try to telling me that a loss on a quarter is a situation that you can say "still profitable". I have made no analysis on First 6 months, both were 2Q. And also, i tried to talk about the higher fuel prices as the reason. How not to compare numbers ? Bradesco vs Itau, CSN vs Usiminas, that's the way market use to compare corporations.

You can say that the result was also driven by a high marketing expense due to the new intitutional campaign while some improvements on the cash position (net availability of BRL 560 mm).

I like TAM, and i'm a Tam frequent (very) customer, i have no intention to hit the company or the people working there. Sorry if it was the feeling but it was not my intention.

Rgds,
Felipe

Also, TAM stock today: + 4,16%


The market seems that numbers (with a good EBITDAR increase), were in fact good and could drive Tam for better results on 3Q.

To continue on the subject of "TAM," I just read a report that TAM is looking for a date to begin ops to LIM (already have the rights) and is looking into a possible MAO-CCS flight.

On the 2Q losses, lower profits, higher fuel prices, in general not-so positive Q for the entire industry subject, RG increased all of their domestic fares by 10% (except CGH-SDU) and TAM/GOL are expected to follow soon.

And the Aviation fuel has fallen 3%. They are trying to improve their margins, which nowadays are very low. Expect that they keep with some prices like RIO-SAO (not Shuttle service).

And also some good news, i read yesterday on "Estado de Sao Paulo" newspaper that TAM will decide until the end of year if they keep with less than 100 seats aircrafts on their fleet, which could produce an order to Embraer in order to buy some E-190 !
I pray to the government finds a way that allow Tam and others to buy Embraer products (top!), with good (or even better) conditions like import an Airbus or a Boeing.

Yes you are right...actaully is more cheap to bring any EMB form a foreign lesor than do it direct with Embraer.....

And what is more funny on this and I never heard nobody mentioning is that Brazil has a law that states as forbidden to trade any product in the country on foreign currency, other than national money.
If a Brazilian airline wants to buy any EMB product will pay it is US!!!!

But law in this country os not for everybody...............

I know by some friends that BNDES is working to provide a special line of credit to avoid this problem. Hope they can work with JJ and even with others to improve the use of E-Jets on domestic routes.
